Transplantation Fellowship Program

The Division of Solid Organ Transplantation and Hepatobiliary Surgery at the University of Rochester Medical Center offers an American Society of Transplant Surgeons accredited fellowship program and meets the training requirements for certification as "Primary Transplant Surgeon" for liver, kidney and pancreas transplantation by UNOS. The multiorgan transplant fellowship requires completion of a general surgery residency program and be board eligible by the American Board of Surgery of its foreign equivalent. The program is a full two-year clinical program.

The multiorgan transplant fellowship at the University of Rochester Medical Center has been designed to offer a comprehensive experience in the pre- and post-operative care of the transplant patient with exposure that includes medical and surgical management in renal, pancreas, and hepatic transplantation. Medical evaluation and selection of recipients, surgical technique, immunosuppression, critical care management, as well as handling medical and surgical complications, are a significant emphasis as a transplant fellow. Cutting-edge procedures such as laparoscopic living donor nephrectomy, living donor hepatectomy, split-liver procurement, and pediatric transplantation significantly broaden the transplant fellows clinical experience.
